Post Doctoral Research Associate – Evolution of Gene Expression (Ref LS/81181)
Based in the laboratory of Dr. Casey Bergman, we seek a capable and enthusiastic computational biologist to study the evolution of gene expression in Drosophila as part of a HFSP-funded project in collaboration with Dr. Uwe Ohler (Duke University, Durham, USA) and Dr Pavel Tomancak (Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, DE). This project will involve the analysis of genome-wide sequence and expression data within and among species of Drosophila to gain insight into the evolutionary forces that control changes in transcriptional regulation across developmental stages.
You should have (or expect to hold shortly) a relevant PhD or equivalent appropriate postdoctoral level experience in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Evolutionary Biology, Gene Expression, Computer Science or related disciplines. This position is tenable for up to 3 years and salary will be £27,466 - £33,780 per annum. Closing date is 6 Nov 2008.
